Best-selling illustrator Michael Foreman tells a dramatic and action-packed chain-of-events story of what happens when a boy meets a dog with a ball. Young readers will love the ‘if only’ refrain as the boy chases the dog, who chases the ball into some visually dramatic situations before reaching a gloriously satisfyingly ending.
'Oh! If only ...I had stayed home that day ...If only ...I hadn't met that dog ...If only ...he didn't want to play ...'. And so begins a remarkably funny chain of events as one young boy and a dog unwittingly unleash the greatest havoc imaginable.
